Hoppy with a properly balanced body. Generous hop additions give it wonderful bitterness & a pleasant floral nose. Our combination of traditional British malts creates a rich flavor & copper color. This authentic English style IPA is our flagship. 6.2% ABV

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2013
On tap at Pizzeria Toro, Durham. Nice to see some Green Man stuff every now and again, and a couple pints of this went down well. Nice lustrous orange pour, with a silky head. Soft English hops and substantial malts in the nose, definitely leaning strongly in the direction of leaf tea. Nice and smooth in the mouthfeel, not overly bitter on the palate. Not particularly full-flavored and aggressive in the way thatís standard for IPAs these days, so itís certainly a relatively toned down example of the style (despite the commerical deScription) and thatís no bad thing.

slowrunner77 (8991) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 5, 2016
Nope. Should be an English IPA category if thereís an English vs American pale, no? Anywway, did NOT like this one at all. Carboardy malts, spice and earth. Bitterness is abrupt at the finish. Least favorite NC beer?

Bottle from ABC. Light caramalt and English hop aroma. Very bitter taste, with some fruity hops. Bready malt. Decent English style IPA.

Emeister84 (1891) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Aromas of sweet corn breakfast cereal, honey, earthy hops are kind of subtle for an IPA. Clear, burnished gold with a lasting white head. Mostly dry, pretty bitter, nice malt backbone. Medium bodied.

zickbeer_ye (441) - Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Aromas of hops, berry sugar, and light citrus. Light white head and dull amber body. Flavors of dry hops, minor citrus and dies off in a strong malty finish. Dry on the palate. Gets a little malty.

Pours an amber from a bottle, soapy and bitter hops. Kind of thin and watery. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
